The debut feature of director Alain Resnais. Elle (Emmanuelle Riva) is staying in Hiroshima for a few days to shoot an anti-war film in which she is to play a nurse. Whilst in the city, she meets Lui (Eiji Okada) with whom she has a one-night stand. The intimacy of their fleetingly intense encounter causes them to reflect upon the city’s painful history and their own memories of love and suffering. As Elle recalls the tragedy of her forbidden love for a German soldier, lost during the final days of the Second World War, she and Lui become inextricably bound by their feelings for each other, their mutual experiences drawing them ever closer together.
